Review: Little Birds Market

A quick post to say a big
THANK YOU
to everyone who came along to the Little Birds Market at Sloans, Glasgow yesterday. I won’t harp on about enjoying selling my work at fairs and markets but I do want to let you know what you missed.

Sloans dates back to 1797 but the market with vintage fair is the new kid on the block. Organised by Laura from Love Me Again she managed to bring together a lovely group of makers and sellers for her first market.

For those of you who have not been here before let me explain Sloans is on three floors. The ground being traditional pub with wee restaurant, the first floor with small & medium-sized rooms and the top floor is a grand ballroom which is used for weddings, ceilidhs and the regular film night.

The top floor was filled with lovely vintage clothes and crockery as well funky jewellery, amazing cakes by The Flamingo Bakery (honestly you have to try them) and even Ashley of Make It Glasgow had her spinning wheel with her.

The Ballroom filled with wonderful vintage goods

I was on the first floor in a beautiful oak paneled room with four other lovely sellers. As t was busy from 11am I didn’t get a chance to really talk to them but thought you might like to see their work.

OH! Almost forgot, with all this shopping you’ll need a cuppa tea and a cake. This is provided by Mrs Sloan on the first floor and yes the tea is served n bone china cups!

I’ll be back on Sunday 19th June and if you enjoyed it or want to see it for yourself get that date in your diary now.
